I'll never zip up my hoodys or jackets again.

10-3 lifetime coaching record in shootouts. Who was ever better at preparing the team for a dumb skills contest after 65 minutes of real hockey? No one.
I'm waiting for the 10 minute water sipping montage.
The Buffalo Sabres: We may suck at playing hockey, but let us get to the shootout and watch out!
I can't in good conscience ask for this thread to stay positive.
Mike Harrington is going to introduce that video on the Jumbotron for the fans next time RonRon is in town.
This thread duznottcompeeet eenuff.
Some fans are going to be wise *****. I get it. They have to vent frustrations on to someone. Everything I read about him is he's a terrific person. And knows how to coach. I just think he was in over his head in the NHL, AND his roster isn't the most talented roster to succeed.
He will coach again, probably in the AHL or juniors next season. I think his resume is impressive before being hired by Regier.
That's not luck. His teams didn't succeed in spite of him. The NHL and the talent poor roster was just too much.
Good luck elsewhere Rolston. Thanks for trying.
I appreciate that he's no longer here.
wrong person, wrong team
I think he'll go back into minor league coaching and maybe one day get another shot.
He was no good. Developmental coach my arse.
He eats Chipotle a lot though.
Remember that time he wore gardening gloves to practice? That was hilarious coach!
Oh wait... he did that every practice.
He was terrible. Worse then Ruff. Pretty much the same type of guy but just worse. Good riddance he needs to go back to the AHL where he belongs.
Don't let the door hit ya on the way outâ€¦.
Asking Rolston to coach an NHL team was like asking me to design an engine for an airplane.
I get how they work, but it would blow up immediately after starting it.
I feel bad for the guy
Never change Rolston never change
I feel bad for Rolston. He was rushed into a position he wasn't ready for and the team, instead of taking a step back to re-evaluate the coaching position in June, he was handed full time job he wasn't qualified for. He was barely qualified as a AHL coach.
All reasons pointing at Regier's dismisal too.
I hope Ron steps back to a level he can succeed at and figures out what went wrong.
I'll be curious to see where he ends up now. He surely won't land anywhere in the NHL, but I could see him back on an AHL team this year.
